This session will explore the paradoxical challenge of "jobs without people and people without jobs."

Two innovative programs driving equitable access to skills training and employment, Advanced Digital Professional Training Program (ADaPT) and Magnet, will be discussed.

Learning Outcomes:
  • Identification of barriers and enablers to work-integrated learning

  • Access to tools to augment career development of underrepresented groups
